Lady of Shalott

On either side the river lie
Long fields of barley and of rye,
That clothe the wold and meet the sky;
And trho' the field the road run by
To many-towered Camelot;
And up and down the people go,
Gazing where the lilies blow
Round an island there below,
The island of Shalott.

There she weaves by night and day
A magic web with colours gay.
She has heard a whisper say,
A curse is on her if she stay
To look down to Camelot.
She knows not what the curse may be,
And so she weaveth steadily,
And little other care hath she,
The Lady of Shalott.

Loreena McKennitt - Lady of Shalott

This is for :iconmorganlefayy: aka Liina for her birthday.. :hug:

This is maybe a different image than usual.. I have not before done something so specific - I had very limited amount o pictures and when I usually work from background to model then this time it had to be from model to background and this way it was much harder.. But Liisa was very happy with it and as Liina declared in her birthday she liked it.. So.. I decided to take up my courage and upload it here too.

I tried to create something mystical and dreamy, that kind of lady of the lake, lady in the mist theme.. great magical and mystical sky, use and play with light.. and still have that kind of feeling, atmosphere that you could almost feel the cold night wind in your face, feel the emptiness under the sky.. and be part of the magic.

The idea with those flowers floating in the water.. believe it or not, the idea came from Top Gear.. :P yes, from Vietnam Special when they had saw that stunning river with those gloaming flowers. I had to dry to make my own version of that.

And who figured that turning a not burning candle to burning can be so hard.. :) Anyway.. I am totally happy with the work.. it is different.. but for me this one has aura, this one has really the feeling that you can be there.. and what most important.. the birthday child liked it.. :)

you're most welcome!
I loved this one. I liked the fact that the model in the picture wsn't the perfect shape. She was a real size. Not one of those stink thin models you see in a lot of pics.
